MTVS Photographs, with Support Data, on Microfiche


Availability: At NSSDC, Ready for Offline Distribution (or Staging if Digital)

Time span: 1971-11-13 to 1972-10-27


This data set consists of 4- x 6- in. B/W microfiche containing all versions of the Mariner 9 TV imagery reproduced by the MTVS laboratory. The versions are (1) raw, (2) albedo, (3) maximum discrimination (horizontally filtered) and, in some cases, (4) maximum discrimination vertically filtered. These versions appear side by side, followed by the data block with the data common to all versions. Up to 60 frames appear on each card. Up to four successive cards constitute the imagery from one orbit. The last card contains additional support data. The cards are ordered by roll and file numbers and are also DAS sequential. The DAS number is the common datum to all versions of the same picture. Each card is headed by the identification of the mission photo laboratory and roll number. The last card for each orbit contains updating of some of the parameters contained in the data blocks that contain predicted values that may be in error. These microfiche constitute the NSSDC catalog of Mariner 9 MTVS photography. Included are 15 cards containing the additional and complete supporting data for each of the frames of the photography.
